''Coach Carter'' will replay its opening weekend
''Coach Carter'' will replay its opening weekend. ''Are We There Yet?'' and ''Assault on Precinct 13'' should post strong debuts
Can Coach Carter go 2 and 0 at the box office this weekend? Unless Ice Cube?s Are We There Yet? surpasses expectations, absolutely.
Carter, the basketball drama starring Samuel L. Jackson, should see a 40 percent drop from its $24.2 million debut to $15 million this weekend, while the family comedy Are We There Yet? is likely to premiere close behind with $14 million.
Look for Meet the Fockers to continue its amazing run, slipping 45 percent to $11 million. The weekend?s other new wide release is the crime thriller Assault on Precinct 13, with Ethan Hawke and Laurence Fishburne. Its good buzz and guy-centric plotline should result in a $10 million opening.
Fifth place will be a fight between In Good Company and Racing Stripes, both of which should gross about $9 million in their second weekend.
